Yesterday I went up to Yorkshire Sculpture Park to dismantle my window display. Apart from taking only a fraction of the time it took to hang the birds up, I was sorry to bring them all back to earth! I never did post any photos of the birds here, as I didn't take any in the beginning and am still waiting for stills from the filming. So here are a few I took yesterday. Unfortunately due to the violet, lit-up sign opposite the window, it was difficult to take a very good picture, but I hope these will give you an inkling of what the flock looked like in full flight!
I also sold original, 3D illustrations, brooches, cards and prints in an applied arts showcase in the shop. Those which weren't sold at YSP will soon be for sale in my Etsy shop, so keep your eyes peeled for bears, giraffes and racing wildebeest!
Finally, and most exciting of all, YSP have been selling a few advance copies of Magpie's Treasure. I've heard they've sold really well so far and was thrilled to meet someone who was just about to buy a copy for her son yesterday, so my first ever signed book went to a little boy called Busby! It was quite nerve wracking as I had the absurd feeling that I ought not to spoil the beautiful, pristine title page with my scrawl... I suppose I'll have to get over that!
